The strength of Optikron is the development and manufacturing of customized solutions, from individually specified components to modules and systems especially developed for our customers. We have in-house available all technological processes and the necessary equipment for the entire production process from the raw glass block to the finished optics or micro-optics, including the optical coating. Our know-how and experiences, the high motivation of our employees and the technological capabilities enable us to manufacture products of highest quality for the most demanding applications. We also develop and manufacture  complex optical units, opto-mechanical assemblies and OEM modules. For that we can use a wide range of special know-how for component and assembly design, process development and precision assembly. Modules and systems can be created from optics, fibers, mechanical parts and electronic components such as sensors and LEDs. In addition to the more than 20 standard cameras in miniaturized sizes and digital microscopes with an innovative, modular concept, we also design and manufacture customized micro cameras and complex vision systems directly optimized for our customers’ needs.

In our processes we combine craftsmanship, technical skills and experiences with state of the in art automation.


Depending on the requirements, we can optimally combine manually, automated and robot-assited processes in order to produce products with consistently high quality also in cost-efficient, scalable processes. Optikron is an experienced partner for product and technology development as well as an internationally acting supplier for products from prototypes to series. We are serving customers all over the world with our products which are mainly used in fields of medical technology, measuring technology, lasers and micro laser systems, sensor systems, optical data transmission and aerospace industry. To correspond to future requirements our technological basis is constantly being expanded and further developed.

Quality Assurance

We are committed to highest quality requirements at our products and are conscious that our products are used in fastidious applications. Therefore it is important for us that everyone of our workforce themselves has a high consciousness about the needed accuracy in each production step and everyone has to work conscientiously in order to guarantee that only products with continuously high quality will be sent out to our customers. To ensure this quality commitment we develop and control operational sequences, examine the compliance with regulations and use modern test and measuring procedures in each production step.

100% inspection

A final inspection of each individual component in accordance with DIN or a special test specification  completes the process before shipping.
